  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

Nuclear Radiation At Fort Greely Alaska Army Sm-1A Reactor

Question

http://www.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/726323.pdf

http://fgacleanup.info/Administrative%20Record/AR005_sm1a_radiation_study_fga_0773.pdf

http://fgacleanup.info/Administrative%20Record/AR231_SM1A_2013_EnvRpt_Final_Redacted.pdf

Hello All,

First , many of our Veterans do not know that the SM1-a reactor which was a major problem with nuclear radiation not just in the Jarvis creek dumping of radioactive waste during the late 60s but also thru 1972 , but also in the injection well fiascos that contaminated the well water for many miles around Fort Greely. The Army SM 1-a portable , prototype reactor was a one of a kind and was the heart of a feasibility study to decide if a portable reactor would be suitable under battlefield conditions. Remember that Fort Greely was and still is the largest Military TEST facility in the world at 657,000 acres. Not just Chemical and Biological weapons during Project 112 but also Nuclear testing.

There are 3 new reports that I have researched and posted above for our Veterans community to see

Especially of concern is on page 4 of the first report showing the fallout circle of particulates surrounding the reactor.

Anyone that was stationed at Fort Greely from 1970 to 1973 was directly exposed to radiation and quite possibly as early as 1964. And certainly those troops that have been there from 1964 till present. Remember that radiation half lifes are generational.

It is of particular concern that Nuclear Radiation directly attacks the Thyroid tumor on humans. It is of no surprise that I have a Tumor on my Thyroid found during Nuclear CT lung scans in 2013. And that thru painful needle Biopsies , that has been diagnosed as benign but still is not suppose to be there. It is also worthy to note that one cannot just lull himself to sleep with thoughts of because a tumor on the Thyroid is benign , they can become active at any time and have to be monitored or sonogramed every year. It is also noteworthy that I have also been diagnosed with Nuclear Radiation and have 2 specific health issues linked to it. Nuclear Radiation also causes an assortment of cancers and anyone who was stationed at Fort Greely, Alaska needs to be especially attentive of their health functions.

This report is very important to discuss the fact that Nuclear Radiation did occur at Fort Greely , Alaska and no one is safe from the fallout of radiation from the Reactor , which , by the way is did occur and the subsequent cleaning and removal of contaminated soils from Jarvis Creek in 2010.

I was diagnosed with Nuclear Radiation in 2007 and 2008 and my C file was sent to the Radionuclearginic teams in Jackson , Mississippi to research if I had radiation exposure and of course , being part of VA , they determined I had no RAD card readings. Which of course is absurd as no one had any rad card readings. Smoke and mirros , yes indeed.

More reports to follow . Still trying to post pictures and such and will when I can figure this out on how to . As always every veteran needs to have the stance of .........................NEVER GIVE UP. C.C.

    • I took a look at your documents and am trying to interpret what happened. A summary of what happened would have helped, but I hope I am interpreting your intentions correctly:


      2003 asthma denied because they said you didn't have 'chronic' asthma diagnosis


      2018 Asthma/COPD granted 30% effective Feb 2015 based on FEV-1 of 60% and inhalational anti-inflamatory medication.

      "...granted SC for your asthma with COPD w/dypsnea because your STRs show you were diagnosed with asthma during your military service in 1995.


      First, check the date of your 2018 award letter. If it is WITHIN one year, file a notice of disagreement about the effective date. 

      If it is AFTER one year, that means your claim has became final. If you would like to try to get an earlier effective date, then CUE or new and material evidence are possible avenues. 

       

      I assume your 2003 denial was due to not finding "chronic" or continued symptoms noted per 38 CFR 3.303(b). In 2013, the Federal Circuit court (Walker v. Shinseki) changed they way they use the term "chronic" and requires the VA to use 3.303(a) for anything not listed under 3.307 and 3.309. You probably had a nexus and benefit of the doubt on your side when you won SC.

      It might be possible for you to CUE the effective date back to 2003 or earlier. You'll need to familiarize yourself with the restrictions of CUE. It has to be based on the evidence in the record and laws in effect at the time the decision was made. Avoid trying to argue on how they weighed a decision, but instead focus on the evidence/laws to prove they were not followed or the evidence was never considered. It's an uphill fight. I would start by recommending you look carefully at your service treatment records and locate every instance where you reported breathing issues, asthma diagnosis, or respiratory treatment (albuterol, steroids, etc...). CUE is not easy and it helps to do your homework before you file.

      Another option would be to file for an increased rating, but to do that you would need to meet the criteria for 60%. If you don't meet criteria for a 60% rating, just ensure you still meet the criteria for 30% (using daily inhaled steroid inhalers is adequate) because they are likely to deny your request for increase. You could attempt to request an earlier effective date that way.

       

      Does this help?
    • Thanks for that. So do you have a specific answer or experience with it bouncing between the two?
    • Tinnitus comes in two forms: subjective and objective. In subjective tinnitus, only the sufferer will hear the ringing in their own ears. In objective tinnitus, the sound can be heard by a doctor who is examining the ear canals. Objective tinnitus is extremely rare, while subjective tinnitus is by far the most common form of the disorder.

      The sounds of tinnitus may vary with the person experiencing it. Some will hear a ringing, while others will hear a buzzing. At times people may hear a chirping or whistling sound. These sounds may be constant or intermittent. They may also vary in volume and are generally more obtrusive when the sufferer is in a quiet environment. Many tinnitus sufferers find their symptoms are at their worst when they’re trying to fall asleep.
